TEL AVIV (BNS): The Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) has announced it has received a contract worth "tens of millions of dollars" to supply four Super Dvora Mk 3 fast attack craft (FACs) to an African military customer.

All the four boats will be built at IAI Ramta's facilities in Israel, and will be delivered during 2016. The vessels would be used for coastal defence, exclusive economic zone (EEZ) and other homeland security missions, the company said on Tuesday without disclosing the name of the customer nation.

The Super Dvora Mk3 is a combat proven boat that is currently in service with several navies worldwide.

"With an overall length of 27 meters, a top speed in excess of 40 knots, and equipped with a full suite of advanced weapons and sensors, this powerful boat will be an important addition to our customer's maritime arsenal for securing its littoral waters," Nitzan Shaked, IAI/Ramta's General Manager, said.
